Amy returned to graduate school after working in foster care in New York City. After receiving her Master’s in social work, she provided individual and group counseling to adolescents and adults, who were struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders and life transitions. 

At Newberg Counseling & Wellness, Amy sees clients aged 14 to adults. Her approach is client-centered therapy. She uses cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapy interventions as well as psycho-education. Her style is non-judgmental, supportive and warm, with an aim towards discussions and working collaboratively on treatment goals. She believes that everyone has their own set of strengths and a therapist can help identify and develop those skills.

Amy enjoys reading and writing, going on walks, and stretching while watching YouTube music videos. She lives with her husband and their two Generation Z children.
